with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
mccain. this year, the kneilson company estimates more than 35 million watched president obama's speech at the democratic convention and more than 30 million governor romney's acceptance speech. but lots of people watching tonight may have already cast their ballots. early voting is underway in 10 states including the battleground of ohio. we have team fox coverage tonight. ed henry traveling with the president. first to campaign carl cammeron with the romney camp. carl, this is his big night. what's the thinking about the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. havin
. obama he did too. a year after it passed a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believe elvis was alive. at one point i told the story how obama told his cabinet that the stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was. when you put the words change and obama this close together you are going to get yelled at. the new -- "the new new deal," right wingers the text of the old new deal and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. i had a feeling some readers wouldn't get past the first four words. and i was right. a few weeks ago i got a google alert that "the new new deal" was in the new republic. i had written a lot for that magazine. i have a lot of friends there. i clicked on the link and it is the blog coast by a 23-year-old researcher who announced right away he couldn't even make it to the first page. she couldn't get past the first four words. but not these four first words. i will read what he wrote. it was so disturbing, so washington
president obama promised when he was candidate obama four years ago? no. but is it better than where we've been for the last 40 months? yes. i also think that we're going to e how this momentum thing plays out because we have so very many events coming one right after the othe we have a vice presidential debate in a few days followed by another presidential debate. we have a lot to see yet. >> it is widely agreed, speaking of debates, that mitt romney won the first debate, but did americans, particularly undecided voters get the whole story. cnn did some fact checking on comments made at the debate this week. i want you to listen to this on the topic of the deficit, first. >> mitt romney claims that even with his tax cuts, he will not add to the deficit. >> my number one principle there is no tax that that will add to the deficit. i will not put in place a deficit thdea tax that adds to the deficit. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. >> we want to look at the facts here, again. mitt romney has not laid out specifics for how he would pay for his tax
crown winner in 45 years. this is the "cbs morning news" for thursday, october 4, good morning. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. today both president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail following last night's debate in denver. as expected the economy dominated their first one on one showdown. romney came out swinging as the candidates argued tax policy, budget deficit and health care and looks like the aggressive approach may have paid off for the republican challenger. a poll shows romney made strides. we go to denver first. >> reporter: terrell, good morning. seems like mitt romney may have received that boost he was hoping for after putting the president on the defensive for much of the night. romney lauded his own accomplishments as governor of to highlight the failed promises of the obama administration. the first presidential debate started with a hand shake and a romantic moment. >> 20 years ago i became the luckyiest man onarth because michelle obama agreed to married me. >> congratulations. >> reporter: that was the last touching moment of the night. >>
years of obama or 8 years of romney. you can do four years fast. eight years is a long time. >> this is the first time they have seen them side by side and they are learning a lot here. i think romney exposed a lot of obama's weaknesses. and deficiencies. so i would give the slight edge to romney. martha: wisdom come be from those gentlemen. some in the crowd did not care what either candidate had to say. one man said he already made up his mind and he voted early. that changes the die ma'am nick a lot of these cases as well. coming up, is it a new day for mitt romney? that is the big question. he did well last night but will it change the game at all? is the president not you one who needs to play catchup? most people think he will. we'll get some reaction from both campaigns how their respective candidates performed last night. that coming up a couple minutes away. bill: remember fox news? where else would you be. the next big debate is one week from today. joe biden and paul ryan scare off in danville, kentucky. we'll have complete coverage of that as we move toward next
-- >> you have been president for years. you said you would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion dollar deficit. less cbs as we will have a trillion dollar deficit in the next four years. >> president obama interrupted again -- think romney might win a and oscar but it was untethered from the truth. the president echoed the complaint. >> i met this very spirited fellow the claim to be a romney. how but it could not have been a robbery. because the real mitt romney has been a are a country for the last year promising 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts that favors the wealthy. the fellow is state last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> leaving denver, met romney can look pleased with himself. one day does not affect the way most people intend to vote, but it means the next string of opinion polls are important. if it narrows, it suggest romney is back in the gate. but if they do not, even after a victory, then he really is in the hole. >> how important was the first debate? i spoke to apolitical blotter and polling number cruncher and the author of a new book, "the signa
the first time in my adult life-- playing on something michelle obama said years ago-- i'm embarrassed for barack obama." >> warner: i noticed from a graphic of twitter it went in peaks and valleys but there was one particular high point and informs the -- during a discussion about regulation. and it was mostly mitt romney. let's watch that. >> there have been 122 community and small banks have closed since dodd-frank so there's one example. here's another, in dodd-frank -- >> lehrer: do you want to repeal dodd-frank? >> i would repeal it and replace it. we're not going to get rid of regulation. you have to have regulation. there are some parts of dodd frank that make all the sense in the world. you need transparency, you need to have leverage limits for institutions. >> lehrer: well, there's a specific. but -- >> let me mention the other one. >> lehrer: excuse me. >> let's mention the other one -- >> lehrer: let's not. let's let him respond to this specific on dodd-frank and what the governor just said. >> warner: why was that a big moment? >> the reason for the explosion of tweets at
against the president, scott, saying point blank "this economy cannot afford four more years of president obama." >> pelley: thanks, jan, also covering the debate is our cbs news political director john dickerson. john, what are the pitfalls that are facing the candidates possibly? >> for governor romney, he's got two jobs: one is to say why the president has failed and the second is to sell himself. to do that job, he has to be aggressive, kind of in the president's face. for the second job he has to offer something people find attractive so the challenge for him is getting the mix right. the challenge for the president is staying on script, talking about how he has been working for the middle-class and not getting knocked off by governor romney who he doesn't have a great deal of personal regard for. so he has to not look defensive. >> pelley: john, thank you very much. we'll be back later tonight with cbs news live coverage of the debate. that's 9:00 eastern time and 6:00 in the west. today secretary of state hillary clinton promised a full and open investigation into the terror attack
, rising unemployment, and spend his energy and passion, for two years, fighting for obama care, instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> the president defended his national health care program and he called romney the wrong man to stave off future financial crises. >> does anybody out there think that the big problem we had is that there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> romney has been trailing obama in the polls. it remains to be seen whether his debate performance will change the presidential race. >> the european central bank is keeping interest rates at an historic low of 0.75%, resisting pressure for cuts to boost the ailing eurozone economy. the ecb president, mario draghi, said the bank is ready to help buy eurozone bonds to help troubled eurozone member countries. how did the markets react to the latest developments? our correspondent sent us this report from the frankfurt stock exchange. >> inflation has spiked. it is a surprising development. one that has prob
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
are touting the fund-raising tallies. $181 million for obama in september, the most for either side this year. with romney collecting more than 12 million following the debate. >> both sides will have a tremendous amount of money down the final stretch of this campaign, particularly that obama $181 million. that's going to allow them potentially to compete almost one to one with all of that republican outside money. >> reporter: still, romney is facing lingering questions about some of his recent assertions. >> number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> reporter: including his argument that his health care plan would cover people who already have medical problems. that decision would be left to the state. that explanation was quickly picked up by president obama at a rally in northern virginia friday. >> governor romney was fact-checked by his own campaign. >> reporter: to counter opponents' effort as an out of touch executive, romney shifted to tell more of his own life story, including his friendship with a 14-year-old diagnosed with leukemia. >> there's a saying, cle
for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, laid back manner, often appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top down economics where folks at the top are doing well so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further -- >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan sin accurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from the candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> your two minutes is up. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me, was -- >>
after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of london which is one square mile in the heart of london which is not even governed by the laws of eng
obama would give them if they give him another four years. >> romney, they say, will ultimately rise in the polls because of his debate perfo performance. for that small number of voters that haven't made up their minds, has this helped romney? >> very difficult past few weeks, if last night went well for the president you kind of have a hardening of the belief that the race is virtually sealed, out of reach. the debate has ended that discussion and it's going to remind us, move into the conversation, a reminder that the president faces in this debate. mitt romney did had himself some good with those undecided voters and just as importantly energized the he republican base. there's a sense of retooling in the obama campaign, look, incoming presidents often have problems in their first debate. people don't talk to you like that in the oval office. no question the president needs a reset. >> ron brownstein, thank you very much for your wise words of analysis. cnn will reair the presidential debate in case you didn't see it. it will reair the debate at 1:00 pm eastern. >>> a look at oth
25 years, i don't know what you're talking about. basically obama was vague last night. but romney came with specifics. jon: cory, you described the debate as being sort of very specific and bordering on wonky but isn't that what people are looking for right now? aren't they looking for specifics and numbers and ideas here? >> i think you're absolutely right about that. always interesting to me tv commentators and others complain how debates and political discourse is boring and turning american people off whether this is exactly the time they should pay close attention. when they do this is when they see the contrast between the two candidates standing on same stage. if you look reports come out this morning, fact checkers, "l.a. times", "wall street journal", "washington post" they're blowing holes in the presentation that governor romney presented last night. saying again, how are you going to pay for deficit reduction? how are you going to pay for the tax cut? how will you create jobs and all of this environment. and still all the things that you want to do. just doesn't add up
capitalizes on it with what he did last night. what is different than four years ago when barack obama took the stage in mississippi he came out with grand ideas about all of us coming together and how we are going to cut the deficit in half and the world will like us again, and how we are going to get out of iraq and afghanistan. guess what, now he's going to run on what he's done over the last four years and there is not a lot he can point to to say that they were successful. that's what got him in trouble last night. if mitt romney does this the next couple of debates and he continues to go out there in the way he did last night and saying, this is how you failed, this is where you failed, this is where it's not adding up, i'm not sure barack obama can really come back with actual facts or figures, because he doesn't have those as time to run on. megyn: simon did you share chris matthews' frustration at the president's performance? >> i may have not been as animated as he was last night. the president didn't have a good night. mitt romney had a good night. megyn: what happened to barack
obama into the white house four years ago. he is still likely to win much of their vote, but gone is the message of hope and change. the american dream has been a part of this election, because many people fear that it's under threat. no more slogans on campuses like this one where students worry they will be worse off than their parents. do you worry about being worse off? >> yes, almost every day. i am fearful that i might not get a job so i might be in debt all my life. >> the university is still seen a good -- as a good investment, because non graduates are fare even worse. but many students are having to lower their financial expectations. >> we still have it in our mind we will be better off than our parents. but i also think that there is an understanding that we may have to redefine what it means to be better off. >> at least he can take comfort in the fact he never has to study from these books again. bbc news, philadelphia. >> let's catch up on the aaron.ss news wit haar the european central bank is the place to be looking today. >> the big interest rate decision, will t

[ applause ] you know the phrase they always use, "obama and biden want to raise taxes by $1 trillion." guess what? yes, we do, in one regard. we want to let that $1 trillion tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. that's not a tax raise. that's called fairness where i come from. >> vice president biden, congressman paul ryan are prepping if for their own debate next thursday at center college in danville, kentucky. >>> the united nations security council is condemning the shelling by syrian forces in a turkey down that killed women a
president obama as a candidate ran on four years ago, was bringing the nation together and yet, last night on the stage, it was mitt romney talking about how he had found bipartisanship with his health care plan and president obama had not with obamacare. >> it's part of the contrast in their records, when you look at governor romney work with a democratic legislature, 87% of the seats in the state house and state senate in massachusetts were held by democrats when he was the governor, and yet they were able to work across the aisle to get things done for the people of massachusetts. they cut taxes 19 times. they balanced the budget and got a rainy day fund and upgraded their credit rating in massachusetts. they brought unemployment down to 5.7%. and that's in sharp contrast. we've had our national credit rating downgraded as a result of president obama's policies. he's not worked across the aisle and we've had unemployment go up as a result of his policies. >> gretchen: although president obama's biggest critique of your candidate is that there simply are not enough details in his plan. s
